Cracked/leaking thermostat housing
Got off the highway last night, stopped at light, looked in mirror all I saw was a wall of smoke/steam out on the back of my G8.
Got her home still smoking and reeking of burnt coolant.
Got home took a look saw nothing, same this morning so off to the dealership.
The thermostat housing has cracked and is leaking, not a lot and not all the time but enough that its finished.
Parts on order totaling $75, labours going to be about $300, plus taxes.
Why did they put this housing in such a ridiculous place?
All in all it could have been worse i.e. head gasket.
Thanx to Les, Jeff and Jim for holding my hand on BBM this morning while at the dealership.
